I mentioned before that I did not do well in high school due to my health and always falling behind. With my continued success in my classes, I went ahead and joined the Golden Key International Honour Society
I took the plunge. It is something I worked very hard for and I felt it would be something that further validates my commitment to myself, my education, and the years of self-study that led to me going to school. It is something I had earned and cannot be taken away from me.
It is one of those things I did to help slay the beast of my youth that stood over my shoulder and pointed to my high school years as a kind of proof that I was a failure. So I did it to slay that beast and to stand proud. I am vindicated.
It is hard work, but the best things in life are worth it.
